The Cleveland Orchestra has appointed a new general manager, Gary Ginstling. He replaces Jonathan Martin, who occupied the post from 1999 and recently took up an appointment as executive director of North Carolina's Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.
This news follows the recent announcement that Franz Welser-Möst, Cleveland Orchestra's music director, is to extend his appointment until 2018, with various long term plans including fully-staged opera at Severance Hall.
Ginstling (aged 42) comes to Cleveland from managerial posts with the San Francisco and Berkeley Symphony orchestras, but he's also been principal clarinet of the New West Symphony and has performed with the San Francisco Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Santa Barbara Symphony.
